Description: The hills are alive with the sound of music! Free-spirited postulant Maria has trouble fitting into Nonnberg Abbey. Sent to be a governess for the seven von Trapp children, she transforms the home from a place of rules and regulations to one filled with joy, laughter, and music. Despite their attempts to drive her away, Maria wins the hearts of the children and their widower father, Captain von Trapp. This Tony- and Oscar- winning musical features such classic Rodgers & Hammerstein songs as “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “My Favorite Things,” and, of course, “The Sound of Music.”
